I am a 58 old runner till two month ago every things was tip top about 25 miles a week

but suddently of bronth ago everything goes wrong out of breath and facing a wall on only 3 miles e

I ve seen my GP got an xray that one came back clear did have an electrocardiogram

that one was OK as well 

lately I have tryed to go easy no more than 3 miles but I am about 2 minutes over my normal pace and no second wind ,normal recuperation

Over this period of time I have been under stress .working problem ...

 well any ideas or advices

Has anything else changed e.g. food patterns, sleep, running route...

Is it possible you have SAD - seasonal affected disorder - and could be affected by the darker days and feel more lethargic etc?

or you are suffering from classic stress symptoms

Is time of that much importance for you at the moment or can you run to relax and to destress?  Once the work issue has resolved itself you will have a good base fitness from which to work up some speed
Sometimes you cant solve everything at once
Use the running as your therapy at the moment and not to add to your woes

Might be worth getting some blood tests done by GP. POSSIBLE THYROID PROBLEM?

Also possible viral infection and post-viral fatigue following that. In which case you need to give yourself rest and time.

I was going to suggest thyroid too. I'm diabetic, which is not ideal for runners, but I'd coped with that - then early last year I found myself losing energy midway through races and training runs. Fortunately, I get a lot - I mean, a lot - of blood tests, so they soon found my thyroxin levels were low. Little white pills helped. A blood test would at least set your mind at rest.
